Beginning Aug. 1, prospective Emory & Henry students can fill out an application to the College that can be sent to other institutions.
Emory & Henry has joined a group of almost 500 institutions that provide the “common application,” which enables students to apply to multiple colleges within that group without having to fill out unique and separate applications for each institution.
“This new approach to the application should ease the transition from prospective student to enrolled student at Emory & Henry,” according to Josh Floyd, E&H director of admissions. “This allows students to spend less time on paperwork and more time preparing for college.”
The Common Application Membership Association was established in 1975 by 15 private colleges that wished to provide a common application form for use at any member institution. Now in its fourth decade, the Common Application provides both online and print versions of member institutions that represent the full range of higher education institutions.
Last year, approximately 2.5 million common applications were submitted online.
